So I'm back to reality with this post and forgetting my overly expensive dream wish list to bring you a few ideas for affordable beauty gifts all £10 and under. There are many ranges doing budget gifts this year which is perfect for many people who love giving beautiful gifts but just cannot afford to splash their cash. Here are a few of my favourites which I will definitely be considering purchasing for friends and family this year!
Aromatherapy Associates Little Star Deep Relax bath and shower oil 7.5ml - £10
How adorable is this? The ornament style of packaging is perfect for the Christmas season and even though the product is small, bath oils last a long time as little amount is needed each time so I believe it is worth the money. The brand is famous for creating luxurious bathing products and so if you know someone who needs to relax at this time of year this is an excellent option.
ELF Cosmetics Day to night beauty on the go - £7
A set of two palettes which clip into the holder depending on which one you need. A great idea for ladies who get ready of the go and would be an excellent handbag item. This range has had wonderful feedback from beauty bloggers and I am desperate to try some of the range so may have to treat myself to this product. Its worth signing up to the newsletter too as they often have money off and free delivery deals.
Elemis Get up and glow skin treats - £10
This kit is great for teenagers who are just starting to get into a skincare regime as it is aimed at teenage skin and contains an exfoliating face wash, daily moisturiser and a set of three purifying face mask sachets. The sachets would be perfect for a pampering party and the packaging is girly but elegant. Elemis is a successful skin care brand so you can be assured that the quality will be high too.
Stila Beach Pallette "Striking in South Beach" - £10
A gorgeous palette containing four eyeshadows, blush and highlighter/bronzer and a good sized mirror. The price is good for this much product and the packaging is sophisticated but fun and so would suit many ages. The palette is available in three styles, with varying colours. I particularly like them because they make me think of summer and when we are feel cold on Christmas morning wouldn't it be nice to open something as vibrant as this?
This Works Christmas Cracker in Dream/Star - £10.00
These elegant gifts contain either sleep balm 10g in the Dream cracker or turbo balm 10g in the Star cracker and even though the product is small, balm goes a long way. The balm can be applied on pulse points on the wrist or onto dry area such as heels, elbows or lips. If you know someone who is struggling to relax at night go for the lavender scented balm in the Dream cracker whilst those who just want to moisturise and look after their skin would probably prefer the Monoi oil formula of the turbo balm in the Star cracker. Would be fantastic under the tree, on the tree as decoration or even on the dinner table as a nice alternative to regular (usually disappointing) crackers.
I highly recommend checking out Feel Unique and Look Fantastic for gifts and everyday beauty essentials because the selection is huge and both sites have free delivery worldwide. I hope this post has given you some inspiration and assured you that you can find some gorgeous beauty gifts this year even if you are on a budget!
